12 days of Christmas.

This year my Sista and I decided that we were going to do the 12 days of Christmas with each other for our kids. I got the odd days, she got the even.  We would call each other while shopping to make sure that we hadn't picked the same presents for the kids.  Even though we don't live in the same state, we are trying to make traditions with the cousins.

My list of presents for the days I had included play doh, ornaments, Christmas socks, coloring books with all the supplies, etc.

Our first day has come and gone, and it was so much fun.  Van fell in love with her new Santa Claus socks, and Devin got an awesome new Mr Potato Head from Uncle Hiram.
This is definitely a tradition that both my Sista and I have decided is a keeper, but next year...we are doing presents for each other. :)Mom's deserve 12 days of presents too!

Cute idea! So did you mail one big box, and then every other day there is something to open?

Yeah, I mailed a big box, and then she mailed me her big box. I am surprised how excited even Devin has gotten. He is really getting into this opening a present every day. Also, I think it keeps the kids distracted from Christmas.

This is such a cute idea! Not only do they get to open gifts, but they are from cousins and people they don't see as often, which I am sure adds to the excitement. How fun! I wish I had Hailey every day so I could do something like this.
